26. A warrant? Some of those entities have their own rubber stamps. They can do their own "warrant" when

 

they want.

A warrant he says. That would be funny if it weren't such a serous violation of the Constitution. What's with all the secrecy surrounding all this? Secret warrants. Secret courts, secret data gathering on EVERYBODY, by out own government, regardless of who and reason for collections!
If this were actually legitimate, why all the secrecy?
The very fact that the government is gathering all that information, meta-data, phone calls, E-mail context, and who knows what else, is a violation of the 4th Amendment. Never mind that contractors are doing the actual work, they are doing it with tax payers dollars, on behest of various agencies of the Federal Government. That is makes it violation of the 4th Amendment. Who here gave the the government or the contractors permission to collect that private data on ourselves? And the contents of the E-mails and phone calls are private.
They are not spying on American citizens? Bullshit, they are. Not only directly, but they are also using information from other countries for plausible deniability. This whole thin stinks to high heaven. Why do you think there is nothing wrong about it? Do you have a pay check involved here?
